Perhaps one might learn about me--and consequently my work—by reading this poem by Bill Holm:

Someone dancing inside us / has learned only a few steps: 
the “Do-Your-Work” in 4/4 time, 
the “What-Do-You-Expect” Waltz. 
He hasn't noticed yet the woman / standing away from the lamp. 
the one with the black eyes / who knows the rumba. 
and strange steps in jumpy rhythms, 
from the mountains of Bulgaria. 
If they dance together / something unexpected will happen; 
if they don't, the next world / will be a lot like this one.
